Strawberry sherbet makes use of the beautiful berries in season right now! The easy recipe only requires 6 ingredients – you can blend it all in your food processor or blender and then freeze in an ice cream maker.
I know an ice cream maker can seem like an extravagance in the kitchen, but I have to say it may be the best $50 I ever spent for a food appliance. Store-bought ice creams, sherbets, sorbets, gelatos, etc. usually have processed ingredients, stabilizers, preservatives … the list goes on. But with an ice cream maker, you can make homemade ice creams full of wholesome ingredients and in the long-run you’ll save quite a bit of money. I’ve had a Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker for 18 years and it’s still running strong!
You can substitute any berries for the strawberries in this recipe, and if you have a dairy allergy, coconut milk makes for the perfect substitute.

- Place the cream and lemon juice in the bowl of a food processor and let sit for 10 minutes. Add remaining ingredients and process until smooth. (At this point I like to taste the sherbet, and add a bit more honey, salt or vanilla to suit my taste.) Pour the mixture into a large bowl and place over a bowl of ice for about 30 minutes, or chill in the fridge for 2 hours.
- Pour the mixture into an ice cream maker and freeze according to manufacturer’s instructions.
